Igknight- October 5, 2022
We had our first inaugural IgKnight retreat at Kuemper High School.  This retreat is for 7-12th graders.  It is the whole day filled with speakers, prayer, reflection, adoration, confession, and mass.  This year, our keynote speaker was Bart Schuchts.  We also had breakout sessions with 10 other fantastic Catholic speakers. 

Bart Schuchts is the founder of Church on Fire and has been associated with the John Paul II Healing Center since its inception.
Bart has been in ministry across the body of Christ for over 30 years. Bart grew up in a Catholic home yet drifted away from God while in college. Following a desperate plea to God while sitting in an NFL locker room, Bart had a powerful encounter with the Father’s love that Transformed his life forever. 
Bart travels the country presenting at conferences and retreats, bringing thousands into an intimate and powerful encounter with the Father’s love, transforming lives, and equipping people to live more fully into Christ’s mission.
Bart’s passion is to see the Church Transformed and equipped to live to the fullness of Her 2000-year history.
Bart is married to Brooke and they have four children: Hannah, Gabrielle, Kailey, and Joshua.
A pastor summed it up well when he said, “Bart is one of the most passionate men for God that I know... His heart is for people to live into t
he fullness of who they are Called to be.”
